What is V-SOURCE?
V-SOURCE, which stands for Virtual Student Outreach for College Enrollment, is a free college access program that provides high school juniors with reminders (via text, email, and other "virtual" means) and online materials to help them prepare for the SAT and navigate the college application process. Students will also receive small incentives for completing important steps in the college application process. Students will receive online SAT and college application curriculum and "virtual support" from trained college student advisors to help them use the curriculum and stay on track during the college application process.
